Weekly re-cap

(Feb. 7 to Feb 13)

Symptoms: Leg pain (when I overdid it with walking), and my sock-bands are starting to leave little indents in my ankles when I take them off at night — but no, I am not calling that swelling. Not yet.

Body changes: The baby-belly is just slowly getting bigger, but I’ve reached the point where I’m quite used to it. It doesn’t shock me like it used to!

What’s new? I’m getting used to seeking out public bathrooms, which is very new to me. I have always hated public bathrooms, but now those little kicky-feet are marching my bladder towards the facilities in Wal-Mart, Sears, Michaels — everywhere!
Belly button: Still creeping towards the surface. Maybe another centimeter to go?
Energy level: Pretty good. Very busy week, but I kept up for the most part.
Baby preparations: Darling Husband started painting the nursery this weekend!
Cravings: Ice cream!!! It hit me like a ton of bricks this week, and suddenly I had to have a cone nightly. Never a bowl — only cones will do. Mmmmm, is it too early for one?

High point: Seeing the nursery start to come together. We still have a long way to go, but it’s a relief to be heading in the right direction.

Low point: Work drama and stress. Sometimes I think I may go on maternity leave a bit early, because the stress will become too much to handle.

Paranoid moment of the week: Concern that work stress was hurting Baby Boy. Dr. L said it wouldn’t affect him, but that it wasn’t good for me. So I’m going to keep calm and carry on for as long as I can there. And if it gets to me too much? Adiós!

So what do you think?
